Check out noteworthy things done and honors received by cities around Idaho as they work to create quality cities.
As October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, the City of Pocatello and Marshall Public Library are partnering to educate the public on staying safe and practicing good citizenship online. Free educational sessions will take place each Tuesday evening in October at the Library.
The City of Post Falls held its annual Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance ceremony on September 12 to remember and honor the victims of 9/11 and to honor those who gave their lives to save others. The ceremony included a moment of silence, the lowering of the U.S. Flag to half-staff, a traditional bell ringing for fallen firefighters, and the laying of a wreath and taps for all victims of 9/11. The Post Falls Police Department, Kootenai Fire & Rescue, American Legion Post 143, and the Patriot Guard Riders honor guard units participated.
The Twin Falls Fire Fighters Association’s annual Fill the Boot fundraiser took place in August and raised over $18,000 thanks to the generous donations of the city’s citizens. The money raised goes to help families in need in the Magic Valley.
